    That will tend to happen when you start attacking people's integrity and character whether directly or by inference.
    Would you expect otherwise?

    But, that's my opinion--as are all the above--just opinions.
    Now that I've nicely summarised your opinions, I'll leave it to others to judge for themselves the value of your opinions.

    No, thanks, not interested in Dead Pool or any quotes from it. Thanks for the suggestion.
    Oh well, your loss then. It would have been a nice humor break for you.

    Howard, please go back to the main Geo site where this type of angry banter is the norm. Here at Geobaby we're a bit more civilized.

    As far as humor goes, I am laughing my face off here imagining the preposterous lengths you are taking my input to. Thanks for the chuckles and grins. :)

    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    Thank you for your opinion and directive, but I think I'll decline.
    If you post your opinions, expect to have them scrutinized.
    If you turn around and attack someone's character, expect that person to growl back.
    As for civility, I afford politeness and courtesy to those who afford the same to me.

Either the husband needs to be moved or the mother and baby need to move. The baby's safety is the first, second and third priority. The husband was completely and shamelessly out of line and takes most of the blame here. However, placing the baby in harms way was not the smartest decision either.
    (1) I'm with NewDad on this. I did question why the baby was still in that bed with a drunk person as you cannot expect a drunk person to be conscious of his/her decisions.

    I'm a mum who is "married to her work" and I do go out for a jolly night out with friends every so often. On days when I know I might be all out for fun, bub is NEVER in bed when I'm home. My bub co-sleeps with us. We love it and she obviously loves it. But it's easy enough to move bub out of harm's way on those nights out. I do the same when it's my husband as I know for a fact that he would not have the same functional rationality as usual.
